The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is set up to monitor, investigate and detect violations of major drug policies. The office of diversion control is within the DEA and their mission is to investigate the illegal diversion of controlled substances while helping to ensure a supply of these drugs for medical and scientific reasons. Anyone wishing to sell or purchase these drugs must secure a license from the DEA's drug enforcement department first. If you lose or misplace this certificate you can request a copy directly from the DEA.

Go to the DEA's duplicate certificate log-in screen.

Click "Login." You will be asked to confirm your address. If it is different, input the correct address and click "Submit." A duplicate copy of your license will be sent to you within 30 business days.
